Dental implant is the latest technology in replacing missing teeth. It is a small metal screw placed in the jaw under some surgical procedures. It looks, feels and functions like your natural teeth. It is made from TITANIUM, a biocompatible material, because living bone will bond onto the implant and your body will not reject your implant like other foreign material.
Dental implants can be used to:
- Replace a single tooth
- Support a bridge to replace several missing teeth
- Support a bridge covering the whole arch when all teeth are missing
- Provide secure fixation for a removable denture
